Hang The Bastard have pulled out of this week's UK tour dates with Entombed AD after singer Tomas Hubbard was struck down by a back problem.
The frontman has spent three days in hospital and is unable to walk without an aid due to a popped disc in his spine.
The London-based group were due to play four UK shows with Swedes Entombed AD, starting tomorrow (Tuesday) in Manchester.
Hubbard says: “I have limited feeling in my legs and feet due to my nerve stem in my spine. Having been under all manner of bizarre machines and sorcery, it would seem I will walk and in theory recover fully in the months to come.
“I sadly can’t tour or rock out as I can’t actually even walk without aid at present. I am so sorry to my fellow bandmates and fans of the band equally for basically being a state and ruining a dream of a line-up tour.
“We have spent a lot of money on flights and merch for the tour so are now gutted and in a tough spot.”
Hubbard says that he hopes to back out on the road as much as possible ever the next year.
He adds: “I’m so frustrated and sorry for any disappointment caused.”
Hang The Bastard released their latest album Sex In The Seventh Circle in September.
